Really Strange Album Covers


nonrabbit: You should have purchased a boat. Jul 27, 2015 16:48:14 GMT
maddogfagin: Or at least a sturdy pair of galoshes O_o Jul 28, 2015 12:43:01 GMT
JTull 007: When I first heard "Young Girl" on the radio, I was too young to care. Then I started dating one and everyone would stare... 8-| My brother said "Can't you get one your own age" O_o ... I said... "Nope" 8-) Jul 28, 2015 14:09:02 GMT *
FrontDoorAngel: Now I feel bad! I didn't mean to point out the "seventeen" bit, only the very suggestive lyrics in general, especially 'landing strip', which possibly refers to something, at least here in America. I realize 16 is the age of consent in England. Jul 28, 2015 21:28:09 GMT
FrontDoorAngel: Also, it's sort of a tradition in rock music anyway. The Beatles, "she was just 17", Ringo's "You're 16, your beautiful and your mine", plus the Stray Cats "Sexy and 17", and Joan Jett's "He must've been about 17, etc. Jul 28, 2015 21:30:09 GMT *
FrontDoorAngel: Personally I love Ian's sexual innuendos, most of which I never picked up on when I was a Tull sprout. I married a 19 yr old young lady when I was 32. Many people balked at that. But I was in love, though she wasn't. :( Jul 28, 2015 21:31:35 GMT *
FrontDoorAngel: Donovan had a bit of a to-do about his lyric, "I'm just wild about fourteen," though he wasn't speaking of a girl's age; Robert Plant had to explain his "She is only 3 yrs old & that's a real fine way to start." It was about his daughter, of course! Jul 28, 2015 21:38:46 GMT *
JTull 007: There's a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure, 'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings. In a tree by the brook, there's a songbird who sings, Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven... ;) Jul 28, 2015 23:02:27 GMT
FrontDoorAngel: Excellent quote, and apropos, JTull 007! Jul 28, 2015 23:24:47 GMT
JTull 007: LOL! I still love LED ZEPP... UN-Ledded ... or Page and Plant... or The Honeydrippers... or Strange Sensation... or Alison Krauss... or Band of Joy... or Sensational Space Shifters... or LED ZEPPELIN 8-) Jul 29, 2015 0:02:58 GMT
maddogfagin: You like Led Zepp then :D Jul 29, 2015 11:34:35 GMT
tootull: YES! Jul 29, 2015 15:13:17 GMT
steelmonkey: Physical Graffiti has got to be one of the best, end to end, no weak track, double albums of all times. Jul 29, 2015 16:37:55 GMT
tootull: Yes Jul 29, 2015 16:46:30 GMT
JTull 007: I saw that performed LIVE in '75 and Robert Plant was struggling with a throat problem. It was still a great show! Jul 29, 2015 20:16:06 GMT
FrontDoorAngel: Great to see the love for the mighty Zep. Too bad IA and the Epic Celt didn't "get on" all that well when Tull was opening for them. Ian has admitted he was a tad jealous of Robert's voice. I hope Plant has no ill-feeling still? Jul 30, 2015 4:01:59 GMT *
FrontDoorAngel: And, I've always thought Plant was a fine lyricist and have always wondered why Zep chose not to print lyric sheets. There's a great deal more than Tolkien, vikings, and sex, contrary to what a few naysayers have said! Jul 30, 2015 4:04:41 GMT *
FrontDoorAngel: Agree about Physical Graffiti. I've always thought that album was (not deliberately) similar to Tull's LITP, with several tracks being rescued from older recording sessions. Jul 30, 2015 4:08:34 GMT
nonrabbit: Jim did you see Zep in '75? So did I in London. What an experience that was :) Jul 30, 2015 9:03:56 GMT
JTull 007: Yes indeed. I have always loved what Led Zepp has done although TULL is what resonates in my soul. I wonder who stole Ian's coat? ::) Jul 30, 2015 11:10:08 GMT *
